X-Ray computed microtomography

Identification of Facility
TitleX-Ray computed microtomography
AcronymX-Ray tomography
Key words3D structure, 2D structure, image analysis, tomography, X-ray
Latest version2013/06/25
ManufacturerSKYSCAN
ModelSKYSCAN 1174
DescriptionThis table top xray tomography is adapted to sample with moderate density (bakery products - bones for example) Power; XRays source between 20 / 50 kV (40 W) camera CCD 12 bits 1 280 x 1 024 pixels

The spatial resolution (pixel size) is 6 µm in the case of a sample of 1cm3 Pixel sizes is between 6 and 30µm depending on sample size Size of object: diamter 30 mm max and height 50 mm max.

A full set of softwares is avaliable to reconstruct the images and to carry out 3D structure analysis: size distribution of pores, wall thicknesses, connectivity etc
